I'm not happy with that, but those are the facts...

One reason I'm doing more track driving -- and wanting a Z/28 to greatly increase my track time even further -- is because I recently lost a friend to pancreatic cancer. Sorry, I'm not mentioning that to sound morose, but we don't have long on this Great Blue Marble. Best to enjoy it to the max, and I no longer have any use for a Garage Queen. If I wear my Z/28 out and its resale value decreases, have I lost money? Hell, no! How do you put a value on the joy you get from using a car like this at it's limit, on the track?!?
Not to mention recent disasters that's been occurring lately, several friends including my father lost garage queens . All the years of pampering and 1 terrible day u lose it all . Live today cause tomorrow ain't promised
